My friend and I ate at the Restaurant Opera twice. Perhaps that is all any one needs to know that we found the food exceptional, the service friendly, accommodating (I have an allergy to peanuts), efficient, and very knowledgeable about the wine and food. The first night my friend had fried whitefish fillet of Swiss wild stock, potato rosemary waffle,... More

Saw a wonderful ballet and had a wonderful meal not too far away. Very interesting decor. Reservation needed. Staff attentive and did not rush us. Appealing presentation of food. Enjoyed our fish, very tasty and not dry. Their salad was fresh with a large assortment of cheeses, tomatoes, peppers, etc. Food is not heavy. Close to tram for convenience

As guests staying at the Opera Hotel, we availed ourselves of a dining experience here. The restaurant does not disappoint - prompt friendly service, exceptional food presented with verve and elegance, classical ambience. All the elements worked in harmony to make a final vacation evening one not to be soon forgotten.

I only ate here because I'm staying at the hotel and it was a rainy night. However, dinner was a memorable experience, and not particularly expensive by Zurich's standards. Highly recommend it.

The photograph of tis place looks a bit off putting - one imagines it will be a very ornate, posh, and stuffy place but it turns out to be a decent upper-middle level restaurant serving very enjoyable food of the "Swiss - no nonsense" variety and at reasonable prices. The night we were there the lead bass singer from the... More

Beautifully prepared and presented food. Service was impeccable and friendly. The decor is a must see. While I was there with my foodie son, would be a perfect romantic dinner spot.

We had dinner last week at this restaurant for the first time. Easy reservation process, kind reception upon arrival, fast service, short a la carte menu. One hour and we were again on the street. Typical Swiss efficiency. Good dinner, excellent fish, the restaurant's motto 'fish is our passion', somewhat limited choice but served with a smile. All for a... More

We dined here and had a wonderful time. The place’s décor was a feast for the eyes and the food was excellent, of good quality. The restaurant had a lot of variety and one enjoys taking their pick.The best was the lobster soup and the wine was also great.
